Literature
W. Baron, Sickert Paintings and Drawings, New Haven and London, 2006, P431, 455.2

The area of London around Fitzroy Square to the north of central London plays a central role in some of the most important movements in early twentieth century British art. Sickert formed the Fitzroy Street Group here in 1907, meeting in Whistler's old studio at 8 Fitzroy Street. This group was to form the nucleus of the Camden Town Group in 1911. In 1915 Sickert acquired the studio; the present work was executed a little later c. 1918, and was also worked into an oil painting of identical composition.
We are grateful to Dr. Wendy Baron for her assistance.

Dame Edith Evans (1888-1976) was one of the most memorable British actresses of her generation with an incredible career that spanned some sixty years and one hundred roles on the stage. A late flourishing in her career also included three Academy Award nominations between 1964 and 1968. She became best-known for her portrayal of aristocratic women on screen and is for many provided the ultimate portrayal of Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.

THE CAPTAIN OF THE GRACE HARWAR
signed with initials l.r.: RCC and inscribed with title and dated (1930)
pencil
48 cm by 30.5 cm; 19 in by 12 in

Provenance
The Artist's Family; Liss Fine Art

The Grace Harwar, built in 1889 in Glasgow, was one of the last commercial full-rigged sailing ships in service. At the date of the present work she was part of the fleet of windjammers owned by Gustav Erikson and mainly employed on the grain trade from Australia to Europe.

In 1929 Alan Villiers, the author, photographer, and adventurer, sailed with his fellow journalist Richard Walker from Tasmania to England on the Grace Harwar. During the voyage Walker was killed in an accident, the under-provisioned crew developed scurvy, and the second mate had a breakdown. Villiers wrote about the voyage in By Way of Cape Horn (1930), calling the ship "a dog with a bad name".

HENRI GAUDIER-BRZESKA (1891-1915)
STUDY FOR "THE WRESTLERS"
pencil
24 cm by 30.5 cm; 9 1/2 in by 12 in

Provenance
Sophie Brzeska; H.S.E Ede; Acquired by the present owner from the Bloomsbury Workshop

The Wrestlers, a cast of which is in the Tate is probably Gaudier-Brzeska's most important work. The artist was comissioned to make a small figure of a wrestler in 1912 and he produced numerous preparatory sketches from trips he made to the gym, as well as a linocut he made into a Christmas card. The present work is one such drawing and was originally in the collection of H.S. Ede at Kettle's Yard in Cambridge. Ede held the most important collection of Gaudier-Brzeska's work, making eight casts of The Wrestlers from the original plaster which is now in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Little over a year after the original plaster was created Gaudier-Brzeska lost his life fighting in the First World War.

GRAHAM SUTHERLAND, O.M. (1903-1980)
TREE FORM
pen and black ink
15 cm by 11 cm; 6 in by 4 1/2 in

Provenance
acquired directly from the artist by his friend the writer Giorgio Soavi

This drawing forms part of a group of studies based on withered oak trees that Sutherland found by the estuary at Picton on his return there in the early 1970s. It became the subject of a number of major pictures and prints, including an etching of the subject and the lithograph La Foresta II (1971-72). Sutherland later wrote of this subject: "the trees are eroded by the tide and the wind...I suppose you would call them dwarf oaks. They have the most extraordinary beautiful, varied and rich shapes which detach them from their proper connotation as trees. One does not think of them so much as trees, more as figures; they have the same urgency that certain movements of figures can have in action.

The city of Glasgow has provided constant inspiration for Peter Howson's highly distinctive and frequently uncompromising work. Gallowgate, in particular,where Howson lives and works, is a constant in some of his most famous pieces, an area he describes as a place where "bad things happen...(although the people there are) real in comparison to the people who generally hang about the art world." (quoted, Donalld Kuspit, Bipolar Paintings by Peter Howson, The Scottish Bosch).
